Let’s Fix Work Episode 74
We talk about and “remember” 9/11 in America in a very callous way, without truly remembering that nearly 3,000 people died at work. Nearly 3,000 people. A lot of people have memories of 9/11, but my memory of that day started a week or so before when I began my orientation at One World Trade Center.
This week I wanted to share with you my thoughts on old Labor Day traditions, the emergence of the “new” Labor Day and remembering 9/11. If the topic of terrorism is hard for you (as it is for many of us) or you’ve lost someone on 9/11, this episode might be one you want to skip.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- My memorial to Claudia Martinez Foster
- Why the idea of Labor Day as a union holiday is an old and stupid idea
- The New Labor Day, a day for remembering, a day of service and moving towards self-awareness
- A reminder that you have a chance to do something great, don’t blow it
